FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- A summer hailstorm blew out windows and caused extensive damage to a northern Colorado town house complex -- but it has been more than four months with no repairs.
Shards of glass still hang from the windows that residents say is a safety concern.
The insurance company handling the claim has to answer to the state on why it's taking so long to fix.
The storm hit on July 5 and tore through the Sage Creek Townhomes.
Sean Cummings pays $200 a month to the homeowners association with the agreement the complex is liable for damage done to the exterior of the building.
"Every day I come home, park out front and I see my windows barely hanging on and I think about (his daughter) and the potential" with the danger of loose glass," Cummings said.
In all, 70% of the of the town homes suffered hail damage.
"Totally frustrating," Cummings said. "We thought it would be resolved and done with by now."
The on-site property management said it filed a claim with Berkshire Hathaway Guard Insurance 13 hours after the storm.
A spokesman wouldn't comment, but the property management has taken the issue to the state, filing a breech of fiduciary duty complaint.
Later in the day, the insurance company sent the property management the initial damage claim report.
A contractor and the property management board will review it for accuracy so repairs can begin.AlertMe
